What brand hubs are you running?

You could upgrade to the Dynatrac kit, but it's not cheap.

The Dynatrac kit was made for setups like yours. It will get red of the unit bearing and replace the Ford lockouts with either 35 spline Warren's or Dynalocks. It uses common bearings that can actually be serviced.

I bought the Dynatrac kit. It was close to $1500 for the kit and since I was overseas I had it put on for $1,000. His labor rates were high though. They came with Warn lockers. You are just about at the cost of the Dynatrac kit anyway so it's only a matter of time before you break another

The guy I had do it said that the stock assemblies just don't last with any sort of oversized tire.
